Moderate 4.5M earthquake 117km from Canberra, Australia.
A 4.5M earthquake struck 13km from Moe, Australia at a depth of 10km (USGS). This could be felt as a V (moderate shaking) around this area and as weak to light far away. We at earthquake report think this earthquake will not cause injuries or heavy damage and only light damage like fallen objects.

There have been a number of felt reports from Melbourne coming in.

The Geoscience Australia website was down momentarily.

The quake will be felt around V intensity. Seismologist at the Seismology Research Centre, Gary Gibson, has confirmed that the latest shake has been a magnitude 4 earthquake east of Thorpdale.

13km (8mi) SW of Moe, Australia 21km (13mi) W of Morwell, Australia 34km (21mi) W of Traralgon, Australia 77km (48mi) ESE of Cranbourne, Australia 114km (71mi) ESE of Melbourne, Australia

Double strong but safe earthquakes in the Kuril islands.
A 6.1M  earthquake at a depth of  17km and a 6.3M at a depth of 10km (USGS) struck 137-147km away from Severo-Kuril'sk, Russia. The earthquakes moderate depth and the location of both epicenters, on the ocean, should had reduced the intensity making both of them "harmless" with a max felt intensity of V (moderate shaking)  for 1000 people . A tsunami is not possible because the magnitudes are not big enough to create one.

Since then, there have been over 200 tremors in Moe and we have had a 4.4 magnitude as well. We came back to Moe hoping for a bit of peace from earthquakes...
  • Boronia - I regularly feel a shaking in Boronia, Melbourne. I hear it more than feel it when I'm sitting on my couch and all is quiet. Sometimes it will happens several times in a night. Sometimes I might not hear it for days. I'm sure it is not an earthquake. Can anyone offer me any suggestions as to what it may be? It almost sounds like someone is dropping something the size of a house several kilometers away. Baffled.

     kmseismograph - recordingUseful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world.
    If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
    For your comfort, we will provide in most cases a Google Satellite Map to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
    green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
    orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
    red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

    QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news. The 0.99 US$ QuakeSOS+ version will support the activities of SOS Earthquakes.

Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
